Chandrayaan-2: NASA finds debris of India’s crashed moon rover
NASA has said that one of its satellites has found the debris of India's Chandrayaan-2 which crashed on the lunar’s southern surface in September.

NASA released a picture showing the site of the rover's landing and the associated debris field.

According to space agency, an Indian engineer, Shanmuga Subramanian helped them in locating the site of the debris.

Mr. Subramanian examined a Nasa picture and located the first debris about 750m north-west of the crash site.

Chandrayaan-2 was due to land at the lunar South Pole on 7 September, over a month after it first took off.

It approached the Moon as normal until an error occurred about 2.1km (1.3 miles) away from the surface, moments before it was to touch down. The rover lost contact and crashed on the lunar’s surface.

In late September, pictures from a NASA spacecraft had showed the targeted landing site of the Vikram rover.
